What's your opinion of Chuggers, Charity Muggers, who accost people in town centres asking for donations.
Chorley Council are the latest to try to regulate these people after complaints from shoppers, businesses and smaller charities who can't afford to pay large numbers of staff a commission to sign people up to monthly direct debit donations...
When I used to work in the City there would be a different set every day. They would be there at bank tube station, Moorgate M&S etc etc. After the first few polite "No" I got fed up of their colleague asking the same question 10 feet along. I now ignore them and for those that jump in front of me trying to get me to stop - well I dont and they sometimes fall over backwards.
Whilst the cause may be good they are very overdue for regulation.
When i go shopping and these people are out i kinda find "SOME" of them like Dracula's!
They have a certain type of person they look for (Or it would seem) i tend to put my mobile to my ear and talk Spanish that works ALL the time!
I have nothing against what most of them are doing i just get sick of "Market Researchers" Charity workers and all the rest of them sucking for money!
I dont have a lot of money and we are struggling so when someone i dont know asks me for some of my money its NOT that i am greedy its that we need every penny we have and i feel obliged with these people so to stop myself feeling awefull i simply walk past them in the manor ive mentioned above..
But then its like any so called Cold Callers too i dont welcome any of them..
